benghazi. greta wrote... they think it's just a way of avoiding testifying this -- chris christie avoided it with an ice cream headache. how is does the benghazi probe affect secretary clinton's political future or does it now that election day has passed and benefit benghazi is no longer a football? >> i think it doesn't because the sacrificial lamb was obvious on susan rice. for a lot of voters, it has been put to bed. how long are they going to keep beating the drumbeat of making someone pay. someone has. her name is susan rice. she won't be secretary of state. it is largely due to benghazi. i think that's what -- the other thing, too, the bigger thing with hillary clinton john, is i did write a piece about what would be the most brilliant thing to say i'm running for one term. >> john: i think this is a smart strategy considering she will be 69 years old in 2016. >> people keep raising the age issues even though ronald reagan was older. then is a woman, it is perceived differently. but the other reason i think it

-55-press. and the official report investigation on benghazi is now complete. the report is out. it blames the state garment for what it calls systemic failures across the board on security in libya, not recognizing and realizing how dangerous the country was and not providing enough security for our embassy in tripoli and the consulate in benghazi. they blame the state department. they do not blame susan rice. all right. tha maybe that will close that story once and for all. we will talk about it, take your calls. first, we get the latest todd's news update, lisa ferguson standing buy in los angeles. hey, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. let me give you a few more details on that report. it is very critical of the state department. an accountability board spearheaded that investigation. according to those results just made public last night, the department did not use enough seasoned security personnel. instead relying too much on untested local militias. the report also blames officials in washington saying they ignored
. >> bill: because of benghazi. >> because of the way the republicans have highlighted this as an issue. john kerry who has been you know the bridesmaid for this position for years and years and years, he is dying for the position. we know that he wants it. he's all lined up and ready to go. it is also very clear senate republicans have made it clear he will sail through a confirmation and that's important. so now it is kind of looking -- by process of elimination that he potentially is back in the front of the line. he remains a top contender. no question. >> bill: would he take defense if he doesn't get state? >> i make no claims to reading the mind of john kerry. he sphnt made himself available to the press to talk about it. >> bill: it would not be a step down to be secretary of defense. >> of course not. he has a lot of experience on foreign policy issues. it would be an appropriate fit. >> bill: no matter what they said in 2004, he is a genuine america war hero. i want to throw that in here.
to first start with benghazi. do you see benghazi as being a turning point of sorts in both kpozing the failures of the obama administration and also kpozing the influence or the lack thereof of america globally? >> well it could well be. you look back on turning points at the moment they occur and realize what happened. the administration has not responded to the attacks. he has not brought the people involved in it to justice of any kind. we haven't retaliated. it is over three months when four americans were killed. i think the lack of response, the lack of interest by much of the mainstream media, the lack of debate about it in the presidential campaign certainly indicate an administration that is very comfortable without paying attention to events in the middle east in particular, comfortable with the prospect of american decline, and comfortable underplaying the continuing threat of international terrorism. and i find that very disturbing. heather: disturbing when we take a larger look at the big picture and some of the issues that we addressed when i was introducing you. long
